2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I love this car! It is a joy to drive. It is a joy to let my friends drive it. My wife is not a car person, but she loves driving it and riding in it. It handles better than any MBZ that I have owned. I have always wanted a Porsche and I am 73-years old. It was now or never. It is the best thing that I have ever given myself. The car's handling saved our lives when another driver almost side-swiped us. I don't drive the car much over 75 because getting their sooner makes the fun of the drive shorter. It is just as much fun in city driving as it is on the highway. One minor electrical fix in 15 months. If you can afford to buy or lease, you won't be sorry. I love my Red Monster!


Best Features

Triptronic, handling, ability to change firmness of ride, ride, quiet for this type of car, workmanship. At 70 MPH on cruise control, the car will deliver about 27 MPG.


Worst Features

Front is quite low and scrapes on many driveways, no matter what avoidance is taken by me. Nature of the beast, I guess.

2008 Porsche 911 Turbo 2dr Convertible AWD (3.6L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I have owned porsches since 1982, great cars, but what has happened to the quality. Buttons now fall off, electrical system fails - try losing your headlights at 65 on a windy road at midnight (I don't believe they switched to Lucas-but.....) and customer service that talks nice and does nothing. I just don't know, it's a blast to drive, but then again, it is a porsche, but then again, it's not the porsche I fell in love with


Best Features

Handling speed


Worst Features

attention to detail, you own Volkswagen, they dont own you

2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

As a youth my father and I never missed stopping at the Porsche dealer while driving by. I had a love affair with the guards red 911 that seemed to always be on the showroom floor. When in 1979 my dad finally purchased a 911 (930 model)Turbo I reveled in its incredible rocket ship abilities. He sold it when I was 13, but the 3 years he had it made the Porsche 911 my dream car. As a self-made and relatively poor young man I was all but resigned to the fact that a 911 in anything other than a used and older variant just would not be in the cards for me. Skip to Feb. 2008 and I have the good fortune of being shocked every time I enter my garage by the sight of a black 2008 911 Carrera S!


Best Features

I know it's a cliche, but I love how the car feels like it is an extension of yourself. It is very easy to drive at or near its limit. Most surprising to me is the ride quality over bumps, it is actually comfortable! I drive it daily with my two kids in the back(3 & 5)and it has exceeded my dreams.


Worst Features

An easier GPS/audio interface but that is just nit-picking. The 911 is like a flawless gemstone.

Review

This 08 Turbo cab is my 5th Porsche, went from 06 C2 cab manual to 08 turbo cab tip and love it!! Because of the awd, it handles corners and twisty roads far much better than my 06 c2-S cab, the power is unbelievable & beyond, it feels very solid & sticks to the road. I wish it has aggressive exhaust note or at least as good as the c-2 S w/ sport chrono package. I hope that I will not miss the stick shift feel and continue to enjoy the tip S on my new turbo. Will see!


Best Features

Instant power unlike my Cayenne Turbo S where it has delay before take-off. painted front air grill looks much better & great exterior style. Being new car with just 150 miles driven so far I got best fuel eco - 24 mpg! it's incredible, it is better than my old 06 c2-S cabin fuel consumption!


Worst Features

For $155K it should come standard with bluetooth, phone, adaptive sport seat, aggressive exhaust note (must) like the lambo-spider or F430

2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S 2dr Coupe AWD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

After having 3 Corvette's I finally made the jump to a Porsche, or should I say leap. It's a different world with this Carrera 4S and talk about fun to drive? The rating of a 10 really doesn't do it justice, maybe a 16.


Best Features

Power, handling, the sound system is insane and I cant stop looking at it, it is beautiful.


Worst Features

put satellite radio in them
